visual effects

Computer Moose
faces the ancient user.
His antlers hold
the keyboard.

all dressed in blue
stands atop the library shelves
arms uplifted.

Ghostly Goat
of peeling paint
and shredded paper
shines and stares
from a weathered brick wall.

Startled Doe,
like her Sisters of the Woods
who peek from behind trees,
peers from triangles of street lights
and stray trinkets of three

Spirits nod
from book covers
and patterns in the rugs.
They yearn for attention,
and imagined hugs,
offer yeses and nos
and flickers of cheer
to the eyes
of one old hermit
bearing bundles of years.
